Have a Scotia Bank account? If so, you can now access their service offerings from your BlackBerry 10 device. The Scotia Bank Mobile Bank app has now arrived in BlackBerry World and is ready for download. 

  • Check your personal and small business account details
  • Pay bills
  • Transfer money between your Scotiabank accounts
  • Send and receive money through Interac eTransfer Send money through Western Union™  
  • Find the nearest branches with the ABM/Branch locator

I don't have a Scotia Bank account to put the app fully to the test but a quick run through suggests that it's quick and fairly easy to use. If you have a Scotia Bank account, grab the download and let us know how it works.

Scotia Bank Mobile Banking app for BlackBerry 10 now available

im with td AND rbc (one for mortgage and cc, rbc is for everything else, regular use)
none of them have a bb10 app
what a lucky guy i am :(

I'm also with TD, and waiting. I hope TD doesn't go this fast and I'm first route like ScotiaBank did and ignore Peek & Flow. If I'm going to eTransfer funds to someone new, I'll need their email account, Peek & Flow for copy and paste - I'm just praying if I leave the apps screen it doesn't log me out automatically.

PS: although your real name is not showing and probably isn't registered, not to mention I'd like to think CrackBerry Editor In-Chief would never condone any criminal activity by all staff members ... posting your personal information or which bank has what is not a good idea. Cheers.

Might be on the to do list for the Indian workers as soon as the Canadians have trained them and been let go...

Just downloaded installed and logged into my account feels like a html5 based app and looks like the android version. Only gesture is to swipe down from the top. Any tab that's clicked on shows a loading bar at the bottom like you were on a Web page

All you get is "we'll forward this" replies.

Send them a message anyway, they need to realize that there is a customer demand for a BB10 app.

come on Chase! But I would say I used the website this morning and it worked well just wish it was an app i find apps faster.

The app is basically a Web launcher. The Web page was already optimized for mobile devices. Still, pretty slick.

Awesome, downloaded and works perfectly, basically the exact same as the mobile site, but nice to have it in blackberry world!

Wells Fargo, where are you?

I'm not really expecting them to come through though as they never had a BlackBerry App in the past... I did sideload the Android app, but that is horrendous. It's quicker to drive to the bank and deal with the teller than actually get anything done on that version...

what I do is save the login screen in my favorites and just go through the web. With the browser being so fast that I have no issues doing this.

What is Scotia bank lol just joking still waiting for Td but that is a somewhat good start

Posted via CB10

Nothing special. Pretty much same as going to the mobile site. Only difference now is I got rid of the Web shortcut and replaced it with a bigger Scotia logo on home screen. One thing I do like about Scotia are the scene points. I've collected over 8000. That's 8 free movies

Good to see the Canadian banks coming out, still waiting for TD, CIBC, and RBC.

Posted via CB10

This is good but I need Bank of America, TD Bank, Vystar Credit Union apps. I know there coming so I'm good.

All this is a link to their mobile banking website, I've had this for weeks... "add to home Screen"
For those looking for a TD app, find their mobile page and "Add to home Screen" and there's you app.
I think only Bmo actually still makes an app for banking these days...

Chase sent out an email a few weeks ago explaining that they were dropping BlackBerry Apps and support completely in April. Not the news I was hoping for! BlkBeauti...how do you know that B of A and TD Ameritrade are developing BB10 apps? Are you sure? I definitely need them!

Keep waiting from what I hear RBC won't be ready till August. From what I have heard they were waiting for the Q10 to come out so they could code for both screen resolutions.

I'm not happy with it either.

I tweeted Rbc today they said they are in development and will be coming soon but no eta

I don't get why people have been complaining about banking apps. Just go to your banks mobile site and add the icon to home screen. It's pretty much the exact same as the banks app. At least onScotia it is.

BlackBerry Z10 and 32gb PlayBook

Feels like you're using the website's version. But I'm not here to complain, thank you Scotia.

Posted via CB10

Side loaded Chase bank app and it works well for now. Not expecting them to make an app since all they had before was a loader to the mobile site.

Posted via CB10

Just a heads up for anyone wanting to use CIBC or TD mobile banking. Just use their mobile banking sites... exactly how same as the app on ios..

It would be nice to have them but after using Mobile sites its no longer an issue

Posted via CB10 powered by BB10

Agreed with those citing mobile sites... its funny to see how quickly the BB community forgets the 'you don't need an app for the web' mentality. To be honest, I've never found myself lacking in any functionality using the CIBC.mobi site (neither on my z10 or my 9900). What I am waiting for is some NFC-payment action... that would be added functionality!

Just tried it out, very easy to use. Feels easier to navigate than their mobile site (and their mobile site is easy to use as is).

I just wrote them today about it, and here it is! Bravo, Scotiabank! You're the best!

Posted via CB10

RBC emailed me that they are developing but not sure about the time frame.

Posted from my lovely Z10

Well it would be cool if it wasn't just the scotiabank mobile website embedded lol I've had this "app" in my browser for years now lol

I can't try it because it needs BlackBerry 10 10.0.10 or higher and I don't yet have a SIM to upgrade my new Z10 LE.

Wait a go SB! RBC would be sooner but they sub it out to an over seas dev :p

Posted via CB10

When it works it works slick doesn't have the "Feel" of a wonky android app, but if I switch out if it for a few minutes and come back, the moment I tap on anything inside the app *poof* it crash-vanishes and needs to be relaunched. Hopefully fixed by next version.

Sent from my iPuh-lease-as-IF

looking forward to the time when payments can be made with the z10 in Canada. Does something need to be enabled for the bank website to work? Not just java script either. My bank site worked on the playbook, but not the z10.

Posted via CB10

I sent Cibc an email and they said they have no plans at this time to build an app for BlackBerry 10.

Thanks Scotiabank

Posted via CB10

Revision : I meant RBC, what are you waiting for? Biggest bank in Canada and they are always the last to get anything get out.

Posted via CB10 from my Awesome Z10

Why bother with a banking app when you can simply use the browser!? It's one of the best browsers around. I deal with three financial institutions (personal, business, and investments). They are all bookmarked in my Z10 browser and work fine. No waiting for apps, I can do it NOW.

Posted via CB10

This is a temp app from Scotiabank. I contacted them weeks ago and they said they are launching this in April and are currently working on a true BB10 app but had no release date info.

Posted via CB10

I'd rather wait and make sure I get an awesome app vs them hurrying something out that's in essences a mobile website link.

Posted via CB10

The one bank in Canada I don't use has an z10 app out before the other Big 3 Canadian Banks. So disappointed with CIBC, TX CANADA, and RBC. You've let me down.

Posted via CB10

Should use Cascades for best user experience. But I can understand using Kony to lower dev cost a little bit.

Posted via CB10

I can't wait for the other banks to come to the party (rbc, bmo, pc I'm talking to you)

Posted via CB10

Lucky. Makes me want to use Scotiabank. I'm with PC and they are always behind

Posted via CB10

With the underdog PC Financial... I'll be waiting a while since they just recently launched their OS 7.x ... *facepalm*

Posted via CB10

Cibc works on Z10! - on a whim I visited the Cibc website went to the download page half expecting it to say not available for your device and to my shock it worked. They didn't even announce it. :( so I now have Cibc working on my Z.

Posted via CB10

It has the same look and feel as the mobile website, be it is at least partially an app and more than just a simple shortcut. When using the mobile app, if I ask the mobile site to remember my card and then clear my history and cookies, the mobile site forgets my card. This "App" remembers it, and I hate having to pull out my card and enter the number each time I want to do some banking.
Five stars to Scotiabank for this app, and an extra one for being the first. :o)
